MLB Ejections 049-50 - Mark Ripperger (1-2; LAA x2)

HP Umpire Mark Ripperger ejected Angels C Martin Maldonado and Manager Mike Scioscia (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the Angels-Tigers game. With one out and one on (R1), Maldonado took a 1-2 fastball from Tigers pitcher Louis Coleman for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.373, pz 1.456 [sz_bot 1.535 / RAD 1.413]), and that all preceding pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Tigers were leading, 5-0. The Tigers ultimately won the contest, 9-3.
